Independent Living

Many seniors may be capable of living without assistance, but cost of owning a home and the upkeep of daily tasks and chores might be a deterrent to enjoying an otherwise independent life. Independent Living Communities provide a solid solution to this situation. Basic needs such as meal preparation and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and social activities is provided, allowing residents an opportunity to use their time as they wish, free from daily obligations. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages and interests. Typically comprised of a private living space and a full kitchen, these communities offer homes with many of the amenities of apartment life but with none of the hassle. Guests can be invited over and entertained, and there will be more time to spend with them with the basic maintenance of daily tasks out of the way. While policies differ between locations, numerous residences allow cats and dogs as well. If medical or nursing assistance is desired, residents may always enlist the services of private caregivers. There are a number of costs and advantages to keep in mind when selecting an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are included in your care plan: internet access, Waiting list deposit, utilities, move-in fee, cable TV, laundry, initial assessment fee, and transportation. The benefits associated with independent living include private rental hall, transportation, game/TV room, concierge services, community activities, healthcare center, golf course, and restaurant-style dining hall.
